Debra herself suffered breast cancer some years ago but fought her illness to come back to build a world class business locally.
Debra had this to say:
"As MD of Fabric Architecture and Director of Art Couture Painswick, my mantra for results is a quote by Ralph Waldo Emmerson, 'Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm'.
"And I certainly saw and felt boundless enthusiasm at this fabulous business luncheon of Gloucestershire's business women.
"It is a fun, uplifting and informative event and importantly brilliant connections can be made in a supportive environment. I loved it! "
With over 140 business women in attendance this event goes from strength to strength.
Angela Edwards Business Development Manager at Gloucester Rugby said
"I am so proud of this event. I came up with the idea a couple of years ago as I wanted to bring professional business women together and offer a forum for them to connect and support each other.
"I put together a fabulous committee of Suzanne Hall-Gibbins Gloucestershire Chamber of Commerce, Helen Lovatt from the Jelf Group, Kay Bethencourt of Barclays and Clare Reader from Gloucester Rugby.
"It's fantastic to see so many successful women in our county."
The next event will be held after the summer holidays with another fantastic guest speaker on Wednesday 11th September at Kingsholm.
